this was part of my point ;( It's hard to call up a customer and say:
"someone told me that you were bad, could you stop please?" normally they
hangup after saying something uncooth and about 'you are crazy'... :( I
may be crazy, but most of the abuse folks aren't.

there has to be complete info in the complaint:

1) logs
2) timestamps
3) timezones

they should be in some structured (see inch-wg/rid for some
almost-standards-based examples) text-based format that is easily parsable
by machines.
